New Homes in Wilmington, NC

A life in Wilmington is a life centered on the water. Long-time residents spend summers (and sometimes winters, falls, and springs) with their toes in the sand, without a care in the world, at the Carolina, Kure, and Wrightsville Beaches. And why not, when they're all within easy reach? We recommend you visit all of the beaches to get a sense for their unique sights, sounds, and personalities. Kure Beach might be the most beautiful in the eyes of purists: simply white sand and sea. Carolina Beach is known for its boardwalk and slight wild side. Wrightsville is a great watersports beach. Take time beforehand to visit the classic Wilmington store Hook, Line, & Paddle for all of your kayaking, fishing, or paddleboarding needs. Many hope to live the beachfront lifestyle, but few actually do. Moving to Wilmington is your chance to live what others have only dreamed of. In that respect, you can't go wrong.

When residents do head inland for the night, the water will follow them via the Cape Fear River downtown. This makes for a vibrant downtown area built around the river, as the city of Wilmington as a whole is built around the ocean. It's nice to look at, too: downtown Wilmington happens to be a 230-block Historic District. As you get to know the area, the Burgwin-Wright House (cira 1770) should be your first stop, along with the Latimer House (circa 1852). Offshore you may see the battleship North Carolina. A good walking tour or carriage ride will introduce you to the rest.

With all that history comes a few ghosts. Tour the old Cotton Exchange and you might see a few of them. If you're less serious about your scares but incredibly serious about your ales, try the Haunted Pub Crawl and imbibe in sheer terror. It's sure to be an interesting experience! There's also an array of restaurants on the waterfront that might interest you more. How about the elegant Circa 1922, a tapas restaurant, or a pint at Front Street Brewery? If you're in the mood for international cuisine, you can't go wrong with Indochine, which specializes in authentic, gourmet Thai food.

Wilmington is more than a vacation destination. It's also the home of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, which acts as the heartbeat of the city. Aside from the positive effects the university has on the local economy, you'll also enjoy its amenities, like the Bluethenthal Wildflower Preserve and the Ev-Henwood Nature Preserve. However, there are also plenty of attractions that don't depend on the university that are also worth exploring, like the Children's Museum of Wilmington, or the Cape Fear Museum. The Cape Fear Museum in particular offers a fascinating look at a critical component of the city: its ecosystem and natural land. As you will realize, the ocean, the river, and other features that make Wilmington what it is, are truly unique and deserve to be celebrated.

There's no question that making a move to a new city is a big decision. But we think you will be glad you decided to build a life in this beautiful beach town. Let New Home Source help you start off on the right foot with a brand-new home in Wilmington.
